I know I heard of a doctoral degree that did not require a dissertation and I thought it was CTU but that is not it. I thought it might be a good idea to compile a list of doctoral degrees that did not have a dissertation. Here is the only one I know of: Nova has a Doctor of Health Science - Through professor-driven, student-centered online course delivery, coupled with an internship, practicum, doctoral analysis, and two one-week on-campus institutes, the D.H.Sc. program challenges the student to examine the current state of health care, and to consider their role in the provision of services to their patients, clients, and the community at large. Doctor of Health Science Program | Nova Southeastern University This does not look like much of a "dissertation" - Capstone (required) — 2 credits - DHS 8120 Doctoral Analysis - http://www.nova.edu/cah/healthsciences/forms/dhs_curriculum.pdf Any others to add?
